Second Grade Landscapes

Second grade artists have been reviewing landscapes this past week – new words for our Word Wall include: collage, foreground, middleground, and background!  First we tore map pages from an old atlas – and spent some time exploring different parts of the world.  (I’m so glad my students find maps as fascinating as I do!)  We glued a layer of tissue paper over the maps for a “cloudy” look – then added cut paper birds and “doughnut flowers” colored with permanent markers.  The finished pieces make me think of summer birds preparing to migrate south – and studying their route on a map!
